It seems a bit off that the creators and producers of Terminator: Genisys would want to give away the biggest plot twist in the movie, i.e. John Connor playing villain.
There has to be more to the movie, and according to a new MoviePilot report, John Connor's (Jason Clarke) Terminator avatar might be a ploy to distract fans from the real shocker that awaits them. In fact, the report goes as far as to suggest that just because the machine takes the form of John Connor it does not necessarily mean that it is actually the real man, and it might have just been masterful engineering by SkyNet. The T-800 form could very well be a doppleganger.
The other interesting theory that is being entertained is the fact that Matt Smith's mysterious character might actualy solve the puzzle, and could actually be the reckonable villain in the movie, someone we know nothing about so far.
It has been rumored that Smith will be taking on the role of a T-5000, which is one of the major draws in the upcoming movie. The Doctor Who actor spoke to The Independent about working in Terminator: Genisys.
Smith's role in the film has been kept a secret. The publication mentioned that the actor is rumored to be playing the T-5000, a new model of the Terminator that has cerebral abilities and can "brainwash" human beings. While talking about being part of the film, the actor was very careful about not letting any details out.
"I love those movies [and] I'm very excited to be a part of those films," he said. "Obviously I can't talk in too much detail about my role."
